Currently travelling the Uk from bottom to close to the top, within our plans to catch up with a long time friend who had plans to fly us to a unique and very special event. Off the west coast of Scotland lies the Outer Hebridean Island of North Uist. Every year a fly-in is organised with aeroplanes landing on the estuary beach at low tide.
Took off from Cumbernauld airport close to Stirling in a Turbine Britten-Norman Islander, often the weather doesn’t allow for low flying. We were blessed with a sunny day and light winds. On the way out managed to get close to the “Harry Potter bridge,” sorry, Glenfinnan Viaduct.
This event is held in honour of it’s founder, thank you John.
In all 21 aeroplanes all singles apart from the Islander made it to the event, a few of the smaller machines did turn back and didn’t make it.
We must thank the event organiser and our hosts, we are humbled and very lucky, a definite highlight of our trip if not one of the better adventures ever!
